This weekend they really pissed me off. They go with their dad for the weekend and like usual he pawned them off on his parents for the weekend. I would have happily just kept them but anyways his mom took dd to a baby shower and I asked wwhy ds didn't go. Oh because exfil took him to a funeral. A flippin funeral. Ds is 5 almost 6 and there is no need for him to go to any funeral. Hell my mother sheltered me from the funerals and wakes of even close family members (ie grandparents) until I was in my late teens. There was absolutely no need for them to take him to a complete strangers funeral. I am livid. My exinlaws, my ex, and I all live within a mile of each other as does my family so if it was a problem with childcare I would have happily helped out or found someone who could. I don't know if I should adress this to my ex... my inlaws or just not adress it at all.
Luckily we have had no deaths in our family I have had to discuss with the kids and had hoped to shelter them from this type of experience for as long as I could. I don't feel funerals are a place for children period, especially when said child had no affiliation with the person who passed. He still doesn't know who died or why he was there. Now I am in a position to answer all these questions he has, and although that isn't a problem it is a conversation I shouldn't have to havew with a 5 year old yet.
Am I over reacting or would you be as pissed as I am?
An do me a favor just ignore all the typos. I'm on my phone and it is being super glitchy
